INTRODUCTION TO BICS2020
Brain Inspired Cognitive Systems 2020 (BICS’2020), as a sequel to BICS’2004-19, aims to bring together leading scientists and engineers who use analytic, syntactic and computational methods both to understand the prodigious processing properties of biological systems and, specifically, of the brain, and to exploit such knowledge to advance computational methods towards ever higher levels of cognitive competence.
There will be NO conference proceedings. All accepted high-quality papers will be published in regular or special issues of our partner SCI/EI journals: International Journal of Automation and Computing, Cognitive Computation (2018 Impact Factor 4.287).
